For medical professionals, clergy and teachers to learn more about self-injurious behavior call NOW for a complimentary seminar. Donations are welcome to continue our awareness.
My message to teens and young adults is that secrets grow in the dark. The light of Christ will bring truth and healing for your present and future. As a teen I struggled with depression, low self-esteem and self-injury.I had feelings of shame, guilt and anger and cutting provided a "quick fix" and became my best friend. I fell into a trap of the secret addiction of self-injury and believing in dark lies about myself and my future.
Recovery is a process of change. I can
celebrate that I have overcome self-injury and live a life of complete restoration.
Now my life's work is to encourage and guide
youth in their recovery.
Lets us help you discover that God will open the doors of hope and you can walk in the grace and freedom ofself-harm. What he has done for me, he can do for you!
In His strength,
Door of Hope 4 Teens

WHAT IS SELF-INJURY?
Self-injury, also known as cutting is a deliberate injuring of the body which is usually done in secret and NOT for attention, but as a cry for help. However self-injury is a temporary fix to a deep rooted problem. Cutting brings release when dealing with overwhelming emotions. A destructive cycle of needing to cut yourself. followed by guilt and shame becomes addictive.
